Coronavirus update – Under the conditions of your tenancy agreement you must inform us in advance of ending your tenancy. If you wish to terminate your tenancy, please call us 0800 011 3447 and we can do this over the phone.
A Housing Officer will also visit your property before the tenancy ends and advise you of any decoration or repairs that must be carried out to the property before you leave.
If we find any damage to the property or repairs not carried out as advised, we will charge you the cost of the repairs. If you pay your rent by Direct Debit, please be sure to cancel this with your bank with effect from the date your tenancy ends.

Please contact us on 0800 011 3447 – we will obtain the details of the deceased from you and provide you will all the advice and information to commence the termination process.
When you contact us DGHP will require the following information:
